Parker is a pretty cool dude. He LOVES to play fetch w/a stick. He'll bring you *anything* he deems is "close enough" to a stick. If you can't reach it, you just tell him that and he'll bring it even closer. He could play fetch all day long. When you reach for the stick he'll "smile" at you...but doesn't do anything more then that. It's a typical border collie quirk. We have had Parker in 3 different foster homes and he's been great, other then not enjoying the company of teenagers/kids. We've pushed him w/meeting new people, moving him around, etc and have not seen anything but the wonderful gentleman that he is, around adults.
Parker is fully house and crate trained (although he doesn't really need to be crated). He's in great shape for his age. He would enjoy a fenced yard to play fetch in, and a family who would take him for walks in the park. Parker has lived w/other dogs, but generally is past all of the puppy stuff and would really love to be an only-dog. He totally ignores our cats and has been around livestock. Parker is looking for an adult home. He'd be a great companion for a couple or a single person looking for a buddy. Parker could live w/someone who occasionally has teenagers/kids visit, but they would need to be willing to crate him, or separate him while the kids are over. Parker's at that perfect point in a border collie's life. He's got plenty of energy, but has also developed the oh-so-coveted "off switch." Nothing beats an amazing senior BC! Someone is going to be very luck to add this guy to their home.
